Cameron House on Loch Lomond
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in Alexandria
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 July 2006

This is a typical resort hotel which is great both for families with children and for the demanding guest looking for elegance and luxury. Indeed, the hotel has a two-class feeling. While the families are gravitating to the pool area and the informal Smollett's restaurant, the bar in the historical drawing room and the outstanding Georgian Room restaurant offer quiet and stylish luxury.

Location: On the south-western edge of Loch Lomond, within a large park, directly at the waterfront, very quiet.

Rooms: Even the standard rooms are tastefully decorated with brand new state-of-the-art bathrooms. The "non-view" rooms have a view into the park. The have family rooms we would have loved when we had small children.

Pool and spa: Huge pool area, with one pool for children and one pool for adults. However, pool area shows signs of disrepair and uncleanliness. Pool area is usually noisy when children are frolicking.

Activities: Lots of activities for every age: Archery, shooting, quad driving, water skiing, speedboating...

Dining: They have a huge breakfast buffet which is somewhat on the rustic side. However, you can order quality dishes like smoked haddock cooked in milk and butter at no extra charge. Smollet's restaurant offers surprisingly creative dishes, however with heavy, creamy sauces. Pricey. The Georgian Room is the best restaurant we ever experienced in Scotland, way better than Edinburgh's Number One, whose chef Jeff Bland, has learned here. The cuisine is both refined, creative and even daring. The surprise menu goes for 65 lbs with additional 30 lbs for matching wines, but is is worth every penny.

Cameron House has always been on my list of Hotels that I have been desperate to visit, so when my husband surprised me, I was very excited.
I do not know what all the fuss was about, not do I know why it has been given a 5* rating. Very disappointing. The staff weren;t helpful on arrival, no information on the Hotel was given such as where the bar is, swimming info etc. The Bedroom was extremely disappointing, in need of redecoration. The bar was also very tired, extremely dull and loud with ports playing the whole time.
Would not recommend if you are after '5* luxury'.

Excellent hotel, very welcoming and professional reception staff, but we were in the newer section which was a fair walk from the entrance. It also seems as though it gets decorated in stages, and by the time the next stage is due, the supplier has run out of the same carpet and wallpaper, so a different scheme is used..............it is very strange and lets the hotel down a bit.

Our room was very nice and we found the gym and pool to be of a good quality. The Marina restaurant was very good, but we were disappointed at the lack of walks round the Loch, not sure why the hotel had not put a "frontage" of some kind for guests.

We paid £129 for a room bed and breakfast for one night, which was half the normal price, and was a fair price we felt

We have recently returned from our wedding at Cameron House and must say that it was the best day. Nothing could be faulted with the hotel down to the organisation of the day. The food was perfect, the setting was perfect, the staff was absoultely excellent.

We were there for a couple of days beforehand and everything went smoothly. The whole hotel, although a five star, felt really homely.

I can't wait to go back for our anniversary!

We stayed at this hotel during the end of May/beginning of June 2006 and it is an impressive building in a perfect setting. The edge of Loch Lomond is inches from the hotel, with unspoilt views, no road noise and really welcoming staff.

Our room was a deluxe, so it had lake views and was quite roomy with the usual ameneties (TV, hairdryer, coffee, trouser press etc etc) and was perfectly clean and well stocked with bathroom goodies!

The facilities at the hotel are impressive. The gym is excellent, with running machines overlooking the loch and well air conditioned with complementary towels and water etc. The swimming pool is average size with a water slide and a jacuzzi area which is overlooked by the casual bar above.

The breakfast is superb with very attentive staff and well stocked until 10am when service ends. There are choices of fresh fruit, cooked meals, porridge, pastries etc made to a very high standard - possibly one of the best hotel breakfasts I've had.

There are a choice of restaurants - one fine dining which requires a suit and tie for men and more relaxed restaurant called 'Smollets' which for £30 a set meal isn't cheap (a la carte mains were about £20-30 each) but the staff and quality was good and there were views overlooking the Loch.

The hotel also has a couple of bars and one in particular (by the main entrance) isn't cheap but you do feel like you are sititng in a lovely stately home with gorgeous surroundings. Two glasses of Pino Grigio and a bottle of water cost £17!!! The more informal bar at the back of the hotel is more reasonably priced.

Overall, the location, venue and staff were top class and I had a fantastic stay at this hotel.
